Installing Bestop Fiberglass Upper Door Sliders - YJ and TJ

I decided to make a write up for installing Bestop fiberglass upper door sliders.
The instructions from bestop are incorrect, so I had to figure it out.

I bought the Bestop 2 pc hard top with upper hard doors. Here's what I have:

Sliders:



Hardware and armrest:



I know, I know..everythings dirty...I use my jeep!

Its easier to install with your doors on your jeep so here we are:

We will be using the three reciever holes for the upper doors:



Here is a close up of the rear reciever:



Use a flat head screwdriver to GENTLY pry the reciever out:



Reciever out:



Next we will need a reciever nut:



Push the reciever nut into the bottom of the reciever. Make sure
the 4 pins on the reciever line up with the 4 hoves in the nut:



Nut on reciever:



Another view, sorry about the blur:



Next with the nut in the reciever, install assembly back into door:



GENTLY push back into place:



Reciver in:



Now only 5 more to go.

After all the recievers are back in the door, sit the slider on the door:



Notice the 3 bolts - 2 long and 1 short:



The short bolt goes in the forward most reciever by the mirror.

Install all 6 bolts:





In this image, you will see how critical it is to line up the nut with the reciever pin. If you dont, you wont be able to thread the bolt in due to misalignment:



Then the armrest is popped into place and thats it! Secure jeep:
